Abstract

Background: Histopathological factors may help identifying a subgroup of breast cancer patients with metastases confined to the sentinel lymph nodes (SLNs). Methods: A retrospective analysis was carried out on III tumours successfully mapped with Patent blue, 69 of which had SLN metastases. Results: Multivariate analysis revealed that SLN metastases situated in the sinuses and a small tumour size are the two most important predictors of involvement of only one SLN. The metastasis size and a small tumour size were found important in the model discriminating between tumours with metastases to SLNs only and those with non-SLN involvement. Classification of tumours with only one SLN metastasis and those with a multinodal involvement resulted in a smaller error rate, falsely classified as lesser nodal involvement. Patients with tumours
